South Korea
Obesity rate: 10%
Life expectancy: 79 years

Pasternak believes the country's diet has something to do with its relatively good health. Pasternak says South Koreans enjoy a low-fat diet that features tofu, noodles, fish and nutritionally rich fermented vegetables known as kimchi. Though barbecued beef is a favorite dish, South Koreans eat it sparingly, consuming just 16 pounds of beef per year compared to the American average of 67 pounds.

Israel
Obesity rate: 24%
Life expectancy: 81 years

Israel's cuisine features several healthy staples, including legumes, eggplants and olive oil. Pasternak also points out that that the Israeli diet makes good use of spices, herbs and seeds. Tumeric, a spice that has anti-inflammatory properties, is used in curry dishes. Mint, which often shows up in the grain salad tabouli, contains manganese and vitamins A and C. Tahini is an essential ingredient in hummus, and it's made of sesame seeds high in several nutrients, including calcium, zinc and folic acid.

Pasternak is quick to point out that Grecians aren't as slim as they once were; more than 60% are overweight. Yet the traditional Greek diet is one of the most studied in the world. This cuisine emphasizes unsaturated fats, whole grains, legumes, vegetables and fish. Meat is eaten sparingly. Common ingredients are omega-3 rich sardines, chickpeas, barley and vegetables like eggplant and peppers.
